Endomondo Delivers Dedicated Pebble App

New Pebble smartwatch app works with Endomondo Sports Tracker for iPhone, with support for Android to be added soon

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – July 2, 2014 – “When will Endomondo sync with Pebble?” That question has been posed frequently by passionate users at Endomondo’s blog. In response, Endomondo today announces the release of a dedicated Pebble smartwatch app for Endomondo Sports Tracker on iPhone.

This new, free app from Endomondo allows users to start, pause or stop a workout while exercising. The app can also display up to three configurable data metrics, such as distance traveled, heart rate and workout duration – making it the most advanced fitness tracking app for Pebble. Additionally, the Endomondo app vibrates Pebble smartwatches for each mile or kilometer completed, and will briefly display a performance summary for the distance.

Endomondo’s app for Pebble syncs with iPhone 4S and all iPhone 5 models. Exercise enthusiasts must be using the most recent version of the free Endomondo Sports Tracker available for download at the App Store, and download Endomondo’s Pebble app from the Pebble store. To sync Endomondo data between a Pebble device and iPhone, simply go to ‘Settings’ in the Endomondo app to connect with a Pebble device.

“We’re excited to welcome Endomondo to the Pebble appstore,” said Thomas Sarlandie, Developer Evangelist at Pebble. “Endomondo’s Pebble app puts preferred workout stats right on our wrists and lets users customize what’s displayed without having to reach for their phones. Pebblers have been eager for Endomondo integration and they’re going to love how smooth the experience is.”

Mette Lykke, Endomondo’s CEO, said Endomondo’s Android app will also support Pebble later this year. She said it is part of Endomondo’s journey towards offering users a convenient and connected experience across popular wearable devices.

“Endomondo now integrates with both Pebble and Fitbit, and we’ll have another exciting integration ready soon,” Lykke said. “Endomondo’s goal is to be a leading companion app for fitness fans and it’s only natural that we develop our service to support new wearable technology entering the market.”

    Not only you have developed the integration more than one year after Pebble was released but you have not developed the Android integration? Is this how do you care for your users?

      I abandoned Endomondo some time ago due to their reluctance to support Pebble and the fact that they are still one of these companies that blatantly favour iPhone I’m glad I switched to Runkeeper. They have supported Pebble since the get-go, on Android as well as iOS.

    Integrate with Garmin Connect, that would be a killer feature. And a easy way of getting all my workouts into Endomondo!

    But will it show your actual speed or just your average speed, like with Runkeeper and many other Pebble apps? It’s already good news that the heart rate will be displayable. Being able to display your actual speed would, in my opinion, turn the Pebble into a usable product.

  5. Android user :( So what about heart rate & elevation gain? Will these be usable on the pebble?

  6. So, one week after Android Wear is announced, and more than a year after the Pebble SDK was released you managed to push out this update for iOS only?

    I regret paying for premium Endomondo. Runkeeper, Runtastic, Strava and other have already release apps for Android with Android Wear support. In addition, Endomondo is the worst in class when integrating with GPS watches. Won’t be coming back here when my training plan is finished…

    And what about the highly publcised Samsung Gear 2 integration still no update in fact notice Runkeeper has an app available. You would think this would be reguarly updated seeing consumers will buy watch on that announcement.

    Heart rate (wahoo blue hr) doesn’t begin to update on pebble screen unless you have Endomondo active on foreground when you start a workout (via pebble or ios ui). After you have started the workout you can lock the phone and put it on running belt or wherever and heart rate updates correctly on pebble for the duration of the workout. Might be ok for training but definately not for race starts.

    “making it the most advanced fitness tracking app for Pebble.” Nope!
    PEBBLE MY TRACKS by Pieter Meulenhoff already offers the Android user the option to display up to FIVE data metrics from a list of 33 available within Google My Tracks (including Heart Rate and a myriad of others). And it’s also free.
    My Tracks allows the user to easily export their data.

    Please make an app for my new Android wear LG smartwatch. I’m using Runtastic now and don’t like it as much as Endomondo. I had no idea Endomondo was on the Apple bandwagon. Is that true?

    I hope they do it like mapmyrun and runkeeper so we dont need an extra app, just need pace/speed, time and distance.
